Look who is standing, and starting to walk!

Calee is standing up and starting to walk like a big girl! She started standing on her own the last couple of weeks. She is able to walk if she is holding on to her little stroller that she got for Christmas. She is so close to being able to walk on her own. Any day now, she is going to just take off and start walking. It is so cute to see her try to walk. She is still so little, and so cute. We are also starting to teach her how to go up and down the stairs. She can go up them pretty good, just not down yet. I can't believe that she will be one year old in a few weeks! They grow way too fast!
"Look! no hands!"

Learning "the stairs"

Lego Castle

When I was younger, I loved Legos. To me, there was nothing funner than taking a million little pieces and building with them to make something big and spectacular. I remember sitting for hours, carefully following the instructions and building everything just perfect. I had a big police station that was my favorite. It had a jail, police cars, and even police motorcycles. I have been patiently waiting for Carter to get old enough to start building with Legos. For Christmas, he got a really awesome Lego Castle set. We decided to finally get it out yesterday and build it. We sat for hours at the kitchen table putting it together. It was a blast! I forgot how much I love Legos. Christy even came over at one point and helped us put together a section of the castle. I can't believe how detailed Legos are these days. Carter has been playing with it non-stop since we put it together. He loves it! Building this castle, makes us really excited to go back to Legoland in California this march. Our kids still don't know that we are going. We are surprising them. I can't wait!
